1.0 out of 5 stars It's not a monolith, it's a muddle, November 16, 2005
This review is from: Hard Core: Power, Pleasure, and the "Frenzy of the Visible", Expanded edition (Paperback)
Williams' claim is that all porn is not the same, but her book title is very specific which would lead one to believe she will make claims about only hard core and not about the attendant debates over all of porn's place in society.

You have to be suspicious when the majority of reviewers of an academic book have not graduated high school. I can barely get my university students to read academic writing.

That first sentence makes no sense.

You may first teach your university students how to read academic writings, and then move on to porn studies proper.
